US Navy ufo sighting

Aboard a US Navy ship. At night. We were watching satellites travel across the sky when in a split second it enlarged to the size of a saucer held at arm's length. It was white and looked like a bowl since the inside of the circle was darker than the edges (smooth transition from dark to light . It stayed there for about 5 seconds then shot straight up and disappeared. No continuing track of the satellite was observed. No sound. This was reported to Allen Hyneck in 1980 or so via talk radio call-in.

This is what it looked like.
